The Presidency has reacted to the invitation of former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Ghali Na’abba, by the Department of State Service (DSS).
A statement released by the Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, said President Muhammadu Buhari has nothing to do with the DSS invitation.
Shehu advises the former Speaker to take responsibility for the comments he made on the President and distance the Presidency from any problem he found himself.
The Presidency said his invitation has nothing to do with the comments made on a television station last week which in any case did not catch the attention of the Presidency, or of any serious politician.
He, therefore, urges Nigerians to ignore what it calls the publicity stunt widely spread to deceive Nigerians about the real reason for his invitation.
The statement read: “Our findings have revealed that his invitation has nothing to do with the alleged irresponsible utterances which in any case did not catch the attention of the Presidency, or of any serious politician for that matter.
“There are serious politicians who talk, and the Presidency respond, because such politicians throw jibes which must get attention.
“Flash in the pan politicians and those who fabricate political relevance don’t bother anyone.
“We advise Na’Abba to distance the Presidency from the situation he has found himself and sort himself out accordingly.”
